Struggeling

This drawing is done. It´s very big and it was astruggle to get it done. I feel that life is a bit of a struggle right now, life and art and combining life and art. I have to get it to work, like this drawing. It has to work. Still not sure that it does though. (klick it to see it bigger!)

it is beautiful...
i feel a bit the same at the moment... it is a struggle to juggle so many things and keep a balance in life.
i guess we just have to keep positive!

It came out great, so much work in there! I know exactly what you mean about the ongoing struggle- I could easily use 5 more hours a day, just for art.

I love the black and white and the detail - it is beautiful! It brings to mind a hedge, a flowery hedge with a small opening through which you can peer ... I like that you have left the opening blank - so that the viewer can imagine anything there! Maybe my interpretation is a bit weird ...
I do hope you get your struggles sorted out - I think combining life and art must be difficult, especially when raising a family as well. I send good wishes and good vibes!

thank you all for your sweet comments. it feels good to know that we are all fighting to get things to work, feels good to not be alone.
And Anairam, thank you for your lovley interpretation of my drawing. I can´t say if it´s right or wrong! When I work the work is rarley destinated towards a goal, like something determent. It´s more "go with the flow" and figure out how to take the next step along the way.
But I can feel with the drawing that I regeret filling the corner with black. I had an idea about it being to much if I continued with the "growth" all over. But now, when it´s done, I think it would have worked just great with growth all over. So... better start on a new one:)
so girls, thanks again for your support:)

Ja, så svårt det är ibland. Men det blir lättare när barnen är större (och kanske tristare). Njut av att du är världens bästa på att rita mönster!!!!!!!!

it is an absolute beauty.
what i especially adore is how you have balanced the black space, white space and line drawing.
my eyes don't get tired of looking at it.
